Marinated Cheese and Olives ~ Game Night Snack

Marinated Cheese and Olives ~ Game Night Snack

This was our Thanksgiving night snack as we were all gathered around the dining table, playing Taboo, which has recently become my new favorite old game. We all enjoyed the briny-cheesy-carby goodness so much I’m thinking this may make an encore appearance as part of […]

3-Ingredient Gingerbread Truffles

3-Ingredient Gingerbread Truffles

These little make-ahead truffles taste just like Christmas! It’s like eating gingerbread cookie dough, but better because this “dough” is dipped in white chocolate. And they’re bite-size so you don’t have to make a whole big dessert out of them, although you absolutely could. Bonus:  This […]

Deep Dark Chocolate Brownies with Pomegranate and Sea Salt

Deep Dark Chocolate Brownies with Pomegranate and Sea Salt

I was recently gifted two fantastic ingredients – black onyx cocoa powder and vanilla bean paste.  Both of which I had never tried before so had no idea what I was missing out on.  The first thing you should know is, I will never buy […]

Our New Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Our New Favorite Pumpkin Pie

My pumpkin pies have definitely evolved over the years.  I followed the recipe on the Libby’s can forever and the pies were good but a little on the boring side. Then came a few years of folding in meringue and topping with pecans, which we […]

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

I love cranberry sauce so much I could almost just sit and eat it all by itself.  The only time I make it though is Thanksgiving.  Maybe that’s what makes it so special.  I like to prepare the sauce two days ahead of the big […]

As Thanksgiving Week Begins…

As Thanksgiving Week Begins…

It’s here!  Thanksgiving Week – the official buildup to the Super Bowl of all foodie holidays is upon us!  Are you excited or panicked?  Honestly, I’m a little bit of both at the moment.  Just yesterday, after wrestling the toddler down for nap, I finally […]

Apple and Blue Cheese Crostini

Apple and Blue Cheese Crostini

I’ve been kicking around the idea of serving these for Thanksgiving and decided to do a test run last night.  What I love is the simplicity of the flavors and also the way you could put everything together in advance or just spread out the […]

Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Because I had three full bags of baby spinach in the fridge that I needed to use or lose, spinach was the theme of last night’s dinner.  We had a delicious spinach and tortellini soup, more on that another day, and these little mushroom bites. […]

Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds

Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds

Have you carved your pumpkins yet?  If not, get to it; it’s Halloween week!   If you’re ahead of the game, I hope you didn’t throw out the built-in snack. This is the one and only time of year we eat pumpkin seeds so it’s […]

Classic Coleslaw

Classic Coleslaw

To me, coleslaw is a perfect addition to any summertime cookout and was delicious paired with our BBQ Baked Beans last week.  What I like about this one is that the cabbage retains just the right amount of crunch and flavor because it’s not drenched […]
